Who was that "copyright oiwner"
It is my belief that the "company " putting that notice in the film may have been "Burbank Video" who sold a lot od public domain titles on VHS in the 1980s. "Burbank" who recorded everything at the SLP speed was formerly "Viking Video Classics" who sold the same titles but at the two hour speed in VHS. "Viking" did not put any "copyright'' notice on their public domain offerings. To many of the outfits selling the public domain titles on DVD really ruin the films by putting their logos and watermarks all over them

happy to see this uncut
I had to sit through a butchered version of this flick this afternoon. Had a title card with a copyright of 1985 by some company I'd never heard of. Glad to see it here! Thanks for posting!
